RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA IN UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
The cultivation, sale, and possession of cannabis for recreational purposes are illegal in United Arab Emirates.
The cultivation, sale, and possession of cannabis are highly illegal in United Arab Emirates (UAE) and will most probably lead to a long prison sentence.
In a country that can give a life sentence or even the death penalty for trafficking, you might want to think twice before getting yourself mixed up with anything cannabis related. Even when you have traces of cannabis in your blood you are already a suspect of possession and in this country you are guilty until proven innocent, so stay safe, and stay away from weed.
We are not aware of any possible law changes in the (near) future in United Arab Emirates regarding medical and/or recreational cannabis.
